I just picked up a copy of the most racy book available to crime analysts this month, The Crime Numbers Game: Management by Manipulation (Advances in Police Theory and Practice) by John A.

With The New York Times running a high-profile story on police analytics and predictive policing, analysts can expect questions from command staff about what the heck that actually is. An early draft of a 2009 predictive policing overview for the LAPD has been published on PublicIntelligence.net. The draft report gives some very basic information about […]

April 26, 2011 by

Sadly, the debate took place on another online forum, depriving Police-Led Intelligence of the traffic that it would have […]

Intel Intelligencer: Debating Asset Forfeiture as a Funding Source for Intel

April 25, 2011 by

2

This week’s Intel Intelligencer points at some documents, works, articles and government guidelines around the topic of asset forfeiture. It is a very long (nearly 3000 word) article, so I’ve broken it into two pieces; this, Part I, is 1500 words long and sets forth the arguments that it may well be a dangerous thing […]
